PARC ASTERIX France Compagnie des Alpes (CDA)
2017 - Pegase Express - (12/5/16) Screamscape was sent a link to a very interesting PDF file that shows off concept artwork for a new 2017 attraction for Parc Asterix called Pegase Express. The artwork shows off large golden statue Pegasus mythical creature with wheels attached to the legs placed in front of a large greek themed coaster station. From the look of the layout, it would be a pretty wild looking steel coaster adventure through the landscape of the park that also appears as if it may enter into some kind of "event building" near the half-way point of the ride experience for an encounter with Medusa before being launched back out of the building... backwards on a switch-track. In short, this reminds me quite a bit of Fire Chaser Express at Dollywood from Gerstlauer, so I'm expecting this one to be from Gerstlauer as well. You can find the artwork yourself at the link above along with another piece of artwork here, which shows off what should be a great coaster experience for the whole family. I'm told that construction may have begun and coaster track and supports may already be on site as well, can anyone else confirm? (1/8/16) Parc Asterix is said to be planning a new unknown coaster for the 2017 season. According to the English translation of this post, the new coaster may be called Pegasus and could be a launched Gerstlauer family coaster, similar in nature to Fire Chaser Express at Dollywood.
